Ice Dragons is the latest in a series of Dragons & Other Rare Creatures projects that feature books, decks of playing cards, and other products by Author/Illustrator Jessica Feinberg. You can learn more about the series at artlair.com 

Fire Dragons was a previous successful project in the series. Some Fire Dragons rewards are being reprinted in limited numbers as part of this project so newer backers  can get Fire and Ice Sets.

Playing Cards

Decks are standard poker sized playing cards printed on high quality 310 GSM Linen Stock. There are no repeat pictures in the decks - that's 54 different ice pictures and 54 different fire pictures (plus the deck back artwork!).  Decks are printed by MPC and come in full color tuck boxes.

All decks come with a matching sticker sheet of postage stamp sized stickers (can be used for deck seals or whatever you want)  and pins/magnets (these are mid-sized round pins with a magnet you can place on the back so they work as a button or magnet).  

Books

Ice Dragons & Other Rare Arctic Creatures is a 6x9 inch (hardcover or paperback) 100 page field guide. The book begins with Ice Dragons, but then moves on to cover all sorts of ice creatures including yeti, ice fae, frost giants, trolls, and much more!  

Also available is Fire Dragons & Other Rare Ember Creatures. This is a matching 100 page field guide covering fire dragons, phoenixes and other fire creatures.

All books come with matching bookmarks and these 4x6 prints:

Egg Replicas

Each egg starts with a wooden egg that is then textured via paper sculpture to look like a dragon egg, hand painted, and varnished. EACH IS UNIQUE! Eggs are lightweight and durable. You can choose 2" or 3" Frost or Flame eggs.  Eggs come with a certificate signed by the artist.

11 x 17 Art Prints

NOW UNLOCKED! Large 11x17 full color prints are available individually or in sets of six (to save on shipping).  They will be shipped rolled in a tube.

50x60 Fabric Prints

I'm SO excited to have a stretch goal for HUGE 50" x 60" Wall Tapestry fabric prints! These are prints ON fabric great for indoor OR outdoor use. You can hang them on the wall, use them to cover entire tables, or even as capes for costumes! Prints are by Inked Gaming and are the same great vibrant colors as the Mousepads and Playmats. They are printed on smooth, thin polyester and drape well, edges are stitched. Can be folded for storage AND are machine washable.

4x6 Prints

Prints 1-4 are included with books (see the books section above) but backers can add those or 7 other designs indivigually for $2 each. A set of ALL 11 is $20, and a set of print 5-11 (the 7 not included with books) is $12.

About the Paintings:

The original paintings offered as the kickstarter rewards are watercolor and may also include some pen & ink work (see below for examples). These are FROM the book/deck. Backers will choose their paintings in the order they pledged, but there are always a few extra so backers will always have multiple options.

Risks and challenges

UPDATED: The deck and book are FINISHED already and I'm just waiting proof copies. I In addition I've run over a dozen successful kickstarters already so I'm really experienced. I always have some contingency in both the budget AND reward deadlines to allow for any issues that may arise. I take making backers happy very seriously and have the project history to prove it.
